The Old Blood is a false start for Wolfenstein's life after The New Order, a creative step backwards that survives primarily because of the strong groundwork laid in the previous game. It will always be fun to fire these guns and MachineGames's presentation is still ahead of the curve, but this isn't the game you should play if you want to explore those qualities—that game was released a year ago.
MachineGames managed to improve Wolfenstein in ways that don’t diminish any of the over-the-top violence. At $20 you really can’t go wrong with giving The Old Blood a shot. If you enjoyed The New Order then you’ll feel right at home with this prequel. ...Somehow Wolfenstein: The Old Blood makes killing Nazis and zombies, the two worst things in videogames next to quick-time events, a fun and worthwhile time.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood continues MachineGames’ commitment to offering classic ultraviolence with some sensible modern concessions and a deeply buried philosophical side. The fact this prequel hasn’t been phoned in, and actually improves upon the prior groundwork, only further demonstrates the care that has been put into this particular iteration of the esteemed shooter series. ...And what they’re doing is making nazi-killing fun again!
